Macbook DVD drive is bogging down the whole system

I'm not sure whats going on. But if I use my internal DVD drive on a macbook 13 inch 2.16, the system becomes pretty much unusable for anything else. If I'm using mac the ripper it sucks up so much resources that you can't watch a Divx video.... Making it more strange, If I use bootcamp and run windows, the same thing happens when I use any software to copy a DVD, it bogs the system down to the point you can't watch anything else or even use a web browser... BUT and this is the weird thing, if I use an external DVD drive I can rip a DVD on Windows or OS and multi-task with no problem.
I'm wondering if there is some software issue that can cause this or if its a hardware issue... and if its hardward, why does the drive work at all?
